3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Early in the season for this.....2013 version labeled as Wolaverís Pumpkin Ale......pours a copper color with an off white head which hangs around for a bit and laces well. Aroma of nutmeg, orange, allspice, and sweetness. Taste is full of spices with little pumpkin taste, perhaps this was too early to try it as the spices overwhelm any other flavor, with a decent mouthfeel. Bitterness is the last sensation after the hit of spice.

RnH: Iím as green as they come (TWSS) however Iíve never been a fan of organic beer, this one being no different. The beer is very drinkable, however almost completely lacking flavor. There are some pumkpin notes on the finish, a tiny bit of spices and thatís it.

The aroma is full of spices and pumpkin, however the taste leaves a little to be desired. It is very bitter, and not as flavorful as I was hoping.

12 oz. bottle. oil slick pour. Hazy golden orange. Bubbly off-white head, tiny bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma of spicy cinnamon. Flavor of nutmeg and vegetable. Malty and pumpkin in the back. Medium mouthfeel. Good bit of carbonation, that you can feel from the middle to the back of your tongue. This one isn’t over flavored, but may be a tad under-flavored.

Will Stevenís Pumpkin Ale pours a deep clear copper color with minimal head and no lacing. The aroma is defintely on the spicy side with small amounts of pumpkin coming through. Cinnamon, cloves, and brown sugar are the main aromas.
Same really goes for the taste. Spices dominate. Cinnamon came to mind at first, followed by the cloves and brown sugar. The pumpkin is there but is hiding most of the time. Up front are the spices and in the end the spices linger on the tongue.
The mouthfeel is very clean, medium bodied, and goes down easy. This is not a pumpkin ale to write home about but Iím glad I got to try it. There is just so much better out there.
